Not Quite Old Enough For This
I have accepted the fact that I am just too old for some things:
- Body Glitter
- Visible bra straps
- Polka-dot manicures
- Bare midriffs
- Thigh high boots
- Pigtails (which I would never wear anyway)
- Navel piercing (which I would SO do, if I were twenty-five again)
It is with regret that I say goodbye to many of these things. “If you see me walking down the street, and I start to cry, each time we meet, walk on by…” The tears are mostly for miniskirts, as the young girls walk past me in the drugstore parking lot. My 1969 legs were unsurpassed.
But I have made a sort of peace with having outlived the body requirements for certain styles.
And it is a consolation that there are still some things for which I AM TOO YOUNG:
Quilted Satin Slippers
Pantyhose with sandals
